  7. Verify that the Registrar pool column for the users now contains the Skype for Business Server 2019 pool, which indicates that the users have been successfully moved.

To move multiple users by using the Skype for Business Server 2019 Management Shell

  1. Open the Skype for Business Server 2019 Management Shell.

  2. At the command line, type the following and replace User1 and User2 with specific user names you want to move, and replace pool_FQDN with the name of the destination pool. In this example we will move users Hao Chen and Katie Jordan.

    Get-CsUser -Filter {DisplayName -eq "User1" -or DisplayName - eq "User2"} | Move-CsUser -Target "pool_FQDN"
    

    Example of PowerShell Get-CsUser cmdlet

  3. At the command line, type the following:

    Get-CsUser -Identity "User1"
    
  4. The Registrar Pool identity should now point to the pool you specified as pool_FQDN in the previous step. The presence of this identity confirms that the user has been successfully moved. Repeat step to verify that User2 has been moved.

To move all users at the same time by using the Skype for Business Server 2019 Management Shell

In this example, all users have been returned to the legacy pool (pool01.contoso.net). Using the Skype for Business Server 2019 Management Shell, we will move all users at the same time to the Skype for Business Server 2019 pool (pool02.contoso.net).

  1. Open the Skype for Business Server 2019 Management Shell.

  2. At the command line, type the following:

    Get-CsUser -OnLyncServer | Move-CsUser -Target "pool_FQDN"
    

    PowerShell cmdlet and results in Management Shell

  3. Run Get-CsUser for one of the pilot users.

    Get-CsUser -Identity "Hao Chen"
    
  4. The Registrar Pool identity for each user now points to the pool you specified as pool_FQDN in the previous step. The presence of this identity confirms that the user has been successfully moved.

  5. Additionally, we can view the list of users in the Skype for Business Server 2019 Control Panel and verify that the Registrar Pool value now points to the Skype for Business Server 2019 pool.
